Mastodon guitarist Bill Kelliher has joined forces with ESP Guitars to release two new signature models - the ESP Bill Kelliher and the LTD-BK-600.

Bill has always been known for his use of LP-style guitars and he will now continue this legacy with ESP. Bill's new signature model, which comes in a military green sunburst finish, takes its core design from the Eclipse single-cut guitar and features a mahogany neck, 24.75" scale and his signature Lace Sensor Dissonant Aggressor pickups.

The guitars also feature TonePros hardware.

“Working with ESP has been a breath of fresh air,” says Bill. “When I first set eyes on this guitar, I couldn’t wait to play this mean-looking weapon of sound. After plugging it in and cranking it up, I couldn’t put it down. What a great piece of work!”

“We are beyond proud to have a guitarist who is as universally respected as Bill in our artist roster,” says Chris Cannella, ESP director of artist relations. “Mastodon is a consistent favorite among fellow musicians and fans, crossing multiple genres of metal with an appeal that’s like no other band. Bill is a great representative of an ideal ESP player. We’re completely stoked to have him onboard.”
